My Wife and I spent and enjoyable 3 hours aboard the Dos Osos, although this time we didn't see any Whales, the trip was very good. The weather was very kind and the sea was like a mill pond. Captain Kevin tried his hardest to find the whales but we did see various other interesting pieces of wildlife!

This trip was the best whale watching trip that we have ever been on! We are so grateful to River and Kevin for the way they hosted, took care of us and brought forth their wisdom & knowledge of whales & other wildlife. We had opportunity to not only see whales but we spend over 1 1/2 hrs viewing three... More

The weather was great & we saw several "spouts", a small whale & two whale tails. However - captain was pretty disinterested & took several personal cell phone calls (loudly) during the trip. Our guide was knowledgable but spoke so softly that it was very difficult to understand her at all. Overall it was OK - maybe there is another... More

Catamaran rode out in choppy seas -- whitecaps all around. Everyone got sick; most wanted to turn back. Captain determined to stay out until he'd managed a sighting. On choppy waters for three hours. Wasn't fun.

I've been out with the Sub Sea Tours boat Dos Osos many times (I should have a cot on board!). Great fun every time. The Captain respects the whales and keeps a safe distance, but manages to get close enough for those great photos. The Captain and deck hands are knowledgeable and passionate about the local wildlife. You will learn... More

We were a little worried about the size of the boat for the whale watching trip but it worked well with the semi clam waters. You may want to take Dramamine if you have motion sickness problems, we had one guy get a little sick. They warn everyone to dress in layers and bring a coat because its an open... More

Guide was nice. Had this really loud annoying music playing loud in underneath part of boat. 45 minute tour and saw fish for less than 5 seconds. Not the guides fault, you can't control nature. I hope most trips have better luck than ours.
